The author is the same person who wrote a New York Times opinion piece past year describing how some top officials are trying to protect the country from what was called an impulsive president.

The unnamed author known as "Anonymous", whose new book "A Warning" will be released on November 19, wrote an op-ed in the New York Times in 2018, claiming to be part of a "resistance" working to thwart Trump's worst impulses.

A new, unreleased book called "A Warning" paints the most damning public profile of Trump since he took office almost three years ago.

In a response, Ross wrote that HBG is "not party to any nondisclosure agreements with the U.S. government that would require any pre-publication review of this book, and Hachette routinely relies on its authors to comply with any contractual obligations they may have".

The publisher, Hachette Book Group, responded by saying it would provide no additional information beyond calling the author a "current or former senior official".

In the book, which according to The Post doesn't provide many specific scenes, the author does recount Trump's alleged words and behavior behind-the-scenes.

. "Unelected bureaucrats and cabinet appointees were never going to steer Donald Trump the right direction in the long run, or refine his malignant management style".

The anonymous author wrote a New York Times op-ed article in September 2018 titled "I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration", which described a "quiet resistance" of officials in the White House working to counter Trump's impulsive tendencies.

The anonymous writer describes him or herself as a "senior official in the Trump administration" who chose to withhold their name to keep the spotlight on Trump.

"We know that he's been acting like a insane man inside the White House", Scarborough said. "He comments on makeup".

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham derided the book as a "work of fiction" and its anonymous author as a "coward". "He critiques clothing. He questions the toughness of women in and around his orbit", Anonymous says. "This is precisely the way a boss shouldn't act in the work environment".

We're no closer to knowing the identity of the anonymous Trump administration official behind the upcoming book A Warning, but they have given some insight into why they are keeping their name under wraps - and whether they will ever publicly reveal who they are.

The White House is denouncing the book written by the author of an anonymous New York Times op-ed, saying the book claiming to contain inside knowledge of the Trump White House is "fiction" and the author is a "coward". The author writes that Trump considered presidential pardons as "unlimited "Get Out of Jail Free" cards on a Monopoly board", referring to news reports that he had offered pardons to aides.

"I am not qualified to diagnose the president's mental acuity", the author writes.

"All I can tell you is that normal people who spend any time with Donald Trump are uncomfortable by what they witness".

According to the Washington Post, the author writes that Trump "stumbles, slurs, gets confused, is easily irritated, and has trouble synthesizing information, not occasionally but with regularity".

Trump is also described as someone incapable of leading the country in a crisis, saying he tunes out intelligence and national security briefings and described as someone easily flattered who other world leaders regard as "a simplistic pushover".
